When the ice cube is released, what distance will it travel up the slope before reversing direction?
A 69 g ice cube can slide without friction up and down a 35 ∘ slope. The ice cube is pressed against a spring at the bottom of the slope, compressing the spring 10 cm . The spring constant is 22 N/m .

mgh = ½kx²
h = ½kx²/mg = d*sin35
½*22*0.1²/(0.069*9.8*sin35) = d = 28cm <<<<<

Hint: Use Conservstion of Energy. The potential energy in the spring is 1/2kx^2 and gets converted into potential energy = mgh
